During the colder months, your heating and ventilation system can save you from a frigid and uncomfortable drive! In the event that you wind up stuck in traffic on a cold day or have to remain in your vehicle for a long time, your heating and ventilation system can potentially save you from getting seriously ill while on the road. Check out our Heating & Ventilation System Maintenance page to discover how your heating system works, what you can do to keep it running efficiently, how to know when it needs to be inspected, and what to do if you discover a problem.

Weather Stripping

The black rubber seals that run along the edges of your doors, windshield, windows, and truck are called weather strips. They work to keep you and your passengers sheltered from outside weather, keeping wind and water out of the cabin as you drive. Our Weather Stripping page contains details on where your weather strips are located, when they need to be repaired or replaced, and how to test your weather strips to locate damage or wear.
